Chicken Parmesan Spaghetti Squash


I'm continuing our love of spaghetti squashes for dinner!
I love how versatile they are and it's fun to serve them in
different ways.  This was a yummy one and we've had
it a couple of times already.  Super easy, too!

I bought small-ish squashes, about 8 inches from end to end.
Cut in half and scoop out the seeds.
Microwave about 8 minutes.   They will not be done but just
enough that you can begin to fluff up the strands with a fork.
After you fluff them up, drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper, 
Italian seasoning, chopped garlic, sun dried tomatoes
and some leftover cooked chicken.  Mix a little to incorporate.
Top with Parmesan and Fontina cheese.
Drizzle the top with some of the oil straight
from the tomato jar.   Make sure your tomatoes
are tucked down inside the mixture so they don't burn. 
Bake for about  30 minutes at 350 degrees.



Yum.

  6. Sounds delish! My daughter roasted some for Christmas. She cut it up in chunks, drizzled olive oil and salt and pepper over it and roasted in a high oven. Delish!

  7. I agree with Eddie, looks delish. I notice that like me you roll the pastry out very thin to use in mini quiche pans. I make mine so thin that you can read the newspaper through it! Well, nearly anyway.

    1. Well, you completely lost me there. No pastry here...just a spaghetti squash filled with yummy things.
      But thank you anyway! haha. I bet you've love this! If you get yourself over here, I'll make it for you!

    2. Sorry, I hadn't got my glasses on. The squash looked like a pastry shell! Silly me.

    3. haha...and you'd be so disappointed in my pie crust...I like it thick! But it has to be buttery and flakey, too!

  9. Flopped with both my spaghetti squashes. Have bought them twice and they are soft and mushy after only a couple days. I will have to keep trying because your recipes for them always look so good.

    1. Oh, that's too bad. They should be rock hard and stay that way. I've let mine sit on the counter for a week! Maybe you should make it the day you get it just to be sure!

      Delete
    2. Yes, maybe I should. I was pretty sure they were supposed to be rock hard. I googled it at one point and it said they should last one to three months on the counter or in the fridge. I will have to try again.

    3. yes, they should last a good long time. I think they sent you ones that were on their last leg!
